In Educational Web Tools section, I compile and review lists of web tools I gather from different sources online and provide them handy for teachers and educators particularly those who, because of their time constraints or any other reason, do not have the time to spend online looking for web tools to try with their students or to use for their professional development. The priority is always given to those new web tools that have recently been created but I so often include other tools as well. However, for today's post I am sharing with you a list of the best web tools for 2012. All of these tools have been nominated for Edublogs Award. Enjoy
